Keto strawberry muffins are easy, healthy almond flour muffins with only 3.9 grams of net carbs per muffin.

Plus, they are gluten-free, dairy-free, and perfect to pair with a cup of my bulletproof coffee for breakfast.

Keto Strawberry Muffins

Are Strawberry Muffins Keto?

Classic Strawberry Muffins are made with all-purpose flour and sugar.

One classic strawberry muffin contains an average of 30 grams of net carbs. It’s almost 10 times what this recipe below contains!

How To Make Keto Strawberry Muffins

Almond flour is the most delicious keto flour to create moist muffins and cakes.

It contains very few carbs and a lot of fiber which makes it very fulfilling.

Let’s see how easy you can make these cute low-carb muffins.

Ingredients

All you need are 7 simple ingredients.

  • Eggs – I used large eggs.
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener of your choice – I love Monk fruit crystal but erythritol and xylitol, in the same amount work in this recipe. Read my keto sweetener guide to find out which are my 4 preferred sweeteners!
  • Coconut oil – or melted butter if you prefer, I love dairy-free baking.
  • Baking powder – or half the amount of baking soda if preferred.
  • Diced strawberries – I used fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries would have worked well too. First, defrost the strawberries, and chop and discard the juice. Frozen strawberries add lots of juice that soften the muffin batter too much. Always defrost before use.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – almond milk is the best milk on the keto diet. It doesn’t contain lactose, the natural sugar from milk.  You can also use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in this recipe. It has no sugar and adds a lovely vanilla flavor to the keto strawberry muffins.

Serving The Muffins

You may wonder when it is appropriate to sneak these 3.9 grams of net carbs into your day? I recommend three options:

  • Breakfast – this is a very fulfilling muffin delicious with a large almond milk latte. I recommend a large dollop of unsweetened coconut yogurt or whipped cream on top if you are really hungry.
  • Snack – if you crave sweets, this will fix your sweet tooth in the middle of the day and keep you full until dinner.
  • Post-workout – these muffins contain 5 grams of protein, which is great to reload your muscle mass while enjoying a sugar-free muffin.

Allergy Swaps

These keto strawberry muffins definitely tick all the diet requirements. Almond flour is gluten-free, which means that they are also delicious gluten-free strawberry muffins.

I recommend checking the ingredient list of your baking powder if you are gluten intolerant. Some may contain added gluten. Otherwise, use half the amount of baking soda.

If you are allergic to coconut, swap the coconut oil for melted butter.

Storage Instructions

It might take you a while to eat 12 of these paleo strawberry muffins. Great news, they freeze perfectly well.

First, place the muffins into a ziplock bag or airtight container. I recommend freezing the muffins without paper cups.

Next, freeze for up to 3 months. Finally, defrost at room temperature the day before. You can rewarm your keto strawberry muffins into the oven or toaster.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 12-hole muffin pan with muffin paper or grease with an oil spray if preferred. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar-free sweetener of your choice, unsweetened almond milk, and melted coconut oil. Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. If you are using cold eggs straight out of the fridge, they will solidify the coconut oil creating oil lumps. Otherwise, use butter to prevent this from happening.
  • Stir in baking powder and almond flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring between to gently incorporate the flour to avoid lumps.
  • Stir in the diced strawberry, if you use frozen strawberries, make sure you defrost them. This eliminates any juice to prevent the muffin batter from getting overly moist.
  • Transfer the muffin batter evenly into the 12-muffin case. I used a mechanical ice cream scoop to be accurate and ensure that each muffin has the same size (and so the same amount of carbs per serving).
  • Bake for 2225 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins comes out clean or with few to no crumbs on it.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan, then gently transfer onto a cooling rack and cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour before eating. Be patient. They get the best texture at room temperature.

Storage

  • Store in an airtight muffin box for up to 4 days at room temperature.
  • Can be frozen in airtight ziplock bags, preferably without the paper cup. Defrost the day before at room temperature. Can be toasted or rewarmed in an oven at 100°C/210°F.

How to serve your muffins?

  • Eat plain or top with unsweetened whipped coconut cream (or heavy cream) or unsweetened coconut yogurt.

    105 Thoughts On Keto Strawberry Muffins (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)
    1 2 3
  1. You have NO idea how this recipe blow my mind… I freaking hate almond flour. Not anymore.
    I changed the almond milk for coconut milk and ended ridiculously delicious. Girl, you saved my insipid keto life!!!!

  2. Can I add whey protein powder to increase the protein content of the muffins? Would I need to replace some almond flour or add more wet ingredients?

    • It’s always tricky to add protein powder in baked goods because it also dry out the batter and can make the muffins crumbly. What about you add the protein powder into a sugar-free buttercream frosting !

  3. 5 stars
    These are so tasty! I didn’t have vanilla almond milk, so I just added a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Thanks for a great recipe!

  4. 5 stars
    These look great. Since I only use original non sweetened almond milk, can a bit of vanilla be added to make up the difference with the unsweetened vanilla almond milk? Thank you.

    • The vanilla almond milk I am using is also unsweetened, it has vanilla extract added, no sugar. If you are using plain almond milk add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in the batter for extra boost of flavor.

  5. I lost the taste of strawberries in this recipe, even though I put a few more in than the recipe called for. I found the almond flavour was overpowering. I feel calling them strawberry frangipans more appropriate. Could cream be used instead of almond milk?

    • well 1 cup of strawberry is what any regular strawberry muffin recipe calls for, more will add watery texture to the crumb. Maybe your strawberries weren’t ripe enough to release flavor. You can also add a strawberry natural extract to boost the flavor, enjoy!

  6. 5 stars
    I made these as a loaf and it’s perfectly yum. It’s almost exactly like a wheat flour pound cake. Definitely a keeper recipe. Thank you

  7. 5 stars
    This is the first keto bakery recipe I made that tastes just like what I used to make with regular flour. So good! It’s a keeper. will they bake up the same with frozen blueberries?

  8. 5 stars
    These muffins are on my automatic remake mental list! They are that great. I make them in a mini-muffin tin, so the texture is spot on and not too moist. I add cinnamon, chopped pecans, sprinkle of ginger, and salt. They are great plain! Mine cook in 16 min and get nicely browned

  9. can i substitute vegetable oil for coconut oil? if so, does it still count as being “keto”? I want to make these for my daughter

  10. 5 stars
    Since beginning a journey with diabetes, I’ve tried many recipes.Some disappointed me, some I threw in trash, but this was the most satisfying I’ve tried. I may try the same basic recipe using blue berries, or apple cinnamon, or chocolate chips. Thank you.

  11. Bonjour,

    Je n’ai que de la poudre d’amande. Est-ce que je peux l’utiliser en remplacement de la farine d’amande ?
    Merci par avance de votre retour.
    Dans cette attente,
    Meilleures salutations,
    Natalia.
